I started working on these family trees over 30 years ago, beginning with information that I had on hand - notes from my mother on the Mann, Fyfe and Humphrey families; a genealogy of the family of James Dyment and Laura Belle McArthur compiled by my uncle, Dave Finlayson; genealogies of the Saaltinks and Spierenburgs put together by my mother-in-law; and information from the many local histories written by community groups on Prince Edward Island, and family trees from the Island Register... I hope I've given proper credit to all of these researchers.

I have tried to standardize all Mc/Mac names under Mc, to make them file together. The focus is on the families that came to North America, so there is little that will help you trace a family back to England or Scotland. My records aren't exhaustive, but are meant to help someone find the right branch of their family. The information is most accurate and complete for the main families, the Dyments, Humphreys, Manns, Beer, and McFadyen families. I'm just beginning to work on the Mcs - the McLeans, the McDougalls, and the McArthurs, and the Ramsays. PLEASE DON'T COPY WITHOUT CHECKING THE NOTES FIRST - I DON'T HAVE PROOF FOR SOME OF THE OLDER FAMILIES!

There should be no living people. If I've slipped up, please let me know! Also, if I've made a mistake with one of your great-great grandparents, please let me know. I'm always finding errors - typos, dates transposed, and such, and updating my database.
